Samsung hits the brakes on Galaxy Fold release


The $1,980 foldable phone‘s problems prompted Samsung to hit the brakes on the original April 26 release, possibly until mid-June. When the outlet asked him about the US launch happening within a month, he said it “will not be too late.”

On Monday, the company emailed people who’d preordered the Fold to offer them the chance to cancel their orders before they ship, warning them that their orders would be canceled automatically if they don’t hear from customers and that the device won’t ship by May 31.

Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.
